Sydney: Jan 18, 2014

Sussex seamer Chris Jordan was called into England‘s Twenty20 (T20) squad to play Australia on Saturday following the early exit of Steven Finn.

Jordan is already in Australia with the One-Day International (ODI) squad where he has shown signs of promise despite England going 2-0 down in the five-match series.

Middlesex quick Finn was the only member of England’s originally selected Ashes squad who didn’t play an international match on a tour where his side were routed 5-0 by Australia in the Test series.

He returned home early in a bid to iron out problems with his bowling action which England limited overs coach Ashley Giles said had made him “not selectable”.

Jordan’s call-up for T20 duty was confirmed by an England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) statement which said: “Sussex pace bowler Chris Jordan has been called into England’s Twenty20 squad for the three-match series against Australia beginning in Hobart on January 29.”

Finn’s problems mean he is unlikely to make it into England’s squad for the ICC World T20 2014 in Bangladesh in March, even though he was named this week in the provisional 30-man party.

Jordan, yet to play a T20I, was also selected in that provisional squad but will now have a chance to show what he can do in cricket’s shortest format.

The 25-year-old Barbados-born paceman had been due to join the England Lions squad in Sri Lanka but his place in the national A side’s tour party has been taken by Yorkshire’s Liam Plunkett.

England’s one-day series against Australia continues in Sydney on Sydney.

After the ODIs, Australia and England play three T20s with matches in Hobart (January 29), Melbourne (January 31) and Sydney’s Olympic Stadium
